"We take the following- from the Ti
oga Record, an excellent local pa
per published at Owego, N. Y., one
of the editors, Mr. Geo. Riley, being
a nepew of Mr. Sam. Chittenden:
"Out in Canyon City, Oregon, the
editor of the News, a hot local paper
offers $75 to parties who will start a
woolen mill. Vhat an enterprising
idea, when there are any amount of
young fellows hero that are idle,
that would start agin mill for almost
nothing. The same paper advocates
a potter shop, and it was at once
presumed by its many readers that
the editor had for the first time heard
"Beautiful Gates Ajar."
Yes, and we have felt a jug ajar,
ns well as heard many family jars,
and if you will induce some of your
idle potherymcn to emigrate to this
State the' can soon make enough to
see the "Beautiful Gates Ajar."

"The Grant County News is warm
in its advocacy of.i woob-n mill iuJohu
Day vallo and urges tb" nr. iter in the
inseiT.sts of the sheep husbandry and
ucnend prosperity of that reni-'-i, aswt
iuii that it is the extreme of financial
fully to pay high transportation rate-, on
the wool shipment of the country and
Jike rates upon the manufactured w- ol
ens that tho inhabitants most use. The
plea is a cogent one." Daily Bee.
We have faith that we will get one
built before two years rolls by. "We
advertised what thti people needed in
this county and as a result, a watchma
ker and jeweler has located; a milliner
shop is to ha opened; a man informed
us the other week that he had sent for
a planing mill; and a izentleinun assured
us a few days since that he would estab
lish a tannery in the county during the
coming year. Thus you see we have
litterly speaking gained nearly half of
what we advertised for and when tho
woolen mill is under course of con
struction half of the advertised business
will be secured and perhaps, all by that
Large Cabbage. Lust Wednesday
Mr. Ed. Luce brought into our oflice

Mr. AYm. Luce has a good farm and the
